Abstract: This paper discusses integrating Moodle, an Open Source course management system (similar to Blackboard), into a course designed to expose teachers into ways to use and integrate computers into their instruction. One problem in preparing teachers to use software in schools is the likelihood that the software taught in the course will not be available in the school where the students end up working. Using Open Source software can mitigate that problem. Toward that end, Moodle, rather than the university-supplied Blackboard, was used as the course management system, providing students with resources, assignments, and discussion boards. As a final project for the course, students used Moodle to build their own course, using the assignments they had done in class as content in their course, making Moodle a means of developing a portfolio of their work.
